Her Own Corner Of TV

The Author of this post is Cheryl Martinez

When I first saw commercials for the Tyra Banks show, I thought it was a goner the moment it first aired on television. I had no idea that this host would be able to win over so many people, myself included, and years later I'm still watching the Tyra show religiously. The topics presented are handled in a very unique way. I find Tyra to be a very likable host, much different from other hosts. When I watch her show, I learn new things but I also find the opportunity to just enjoy her personality and the show without really getting too involved in the topics. It's not as emotionally draining as an Oprah show.

Watching Tyra has become one of my main routines in life. I watch her on my satellite TV, that I got after seeing these, and sometimes watch it with friends so that we can all discuss the topics included in the show. While it's my favorite talk show, it's just one of the many shows that I enjoy daily. I never miss an episode of Tyra if I can help it and anxiously look forward to the next show and topic that she covers. I love her audience, too, there's just such a friendly environment in her studio audience and Tyra herself always seems to be having such a wonderful time doing her show that I can't help but have a good time too.

My Husband, The HERO

I was reminiscing about my pregnancy last year and feeling so very thankful for my husband.  He was with me throughout our pregnancy.  With the exception of the first appointment when my doctor confirmed that I was pregnant and during the 3 hour glucose test - he was at every appointment.  I say that he is my hero for many reasons. With every craving he would be out the door and get whatever baby & I wanted.  When my feet were sore & swollen: he would rub them for me.   When I had to roll out of bed every five seconds to pee: he would give me nudge (a SHOVE by the end of the pregnancy). We had our evening ritual (which I recommend to all pregnant couples):  Every night (around once I began to "show") I asked hubby to rub my belly and talk to our son...It was wonderful for bonding as husband and wife AND for our son to recognize daddy's voice.  An added benefit: the coco butter, belly balm, oil etc..kept my skin supple.  I didn't get any stretchmarks.  It's hard to believe that almost a year has passed...

Dr. Husband

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

I'll be the first to admit that I am not the world's best patient when I am sick. Being sick is never fun but being sick as a new mom adds even more to the stress of being sick. With sleep deprivation and the worry about our baby catching the bug that I was dealing with, I had to put our care solely in the hands of my husband.  I can confidently say that I am able to trust my husband with the care of our son and Dr. Husband with the care of a cranky, ill wife.  I was out of commission for about a week with cold and flu symptoms. During that time my son never lacked for care. I didn't have to worry about my baby because hubby had it under control.  All I could do was stay in bed and get rest.  This can be tough to do when you are coughing, suffering with a sore throat, and full of aches and pains.  During my illness I took Walgreens Brand Multi-Symptom Nighttime Cold & Flu Relief.  It works as well as the name brand nighttime relief medicine at a fraction of the cost.  We first tried Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products when our infant son needed pain relief from teething.  We now choose carefully when purchasing over the counter medicines as we learned that we can save money without worrying about sacrificing quality.  Most contain the same active ingredients as other national brands and we trust  Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products.

Friday Featurette

Happy Friday Everyone! We have survived yet another work week. If you don't know by now, I must tell you that I truly enjoy promoting other Bloggers. I try my best to feature a Blogger that has inspired me. When I find something great, I have this uncontrollable urge to share!  This week I hope that you all check out Man Wife and Dog Blog

I enjoyed this post so much that I had to share it with all of you other "marrieds"! We've all heard the reference "who wears the pants" in the relationship...

Read: Who Wears The Shorts In Your Marriage?

 "If your relationship is healthy then neither of you would wear the pants; instead you both wear the shorts. Meaning you’re both half responsible for every decision, and outcome in your marriage."

I contacted Charli (the wife) who writes Man Wife and Dog Blog and she graciously gave me permission to feature her blog on my post.  As a newly married woman I really appreciate great marriage blogs!   I have been able to relate to quite a few posts but could not list them all! So please check out this blog and let me know  what you think! I hope that you find this blog as inspirational as I do!
